Excellent selection of Material for Ute. Buy It! 1 Oct. 2005
By B. Marold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
`Illusions' and `City of Strangers', albums primarily of vocals by Ute Lemper, were released in 1992 and 1995 respectively, interspersed with her releasing the last of her major albums of Kurt Weill material in 1993. `Illusions' and `City of Strangers' are both a mix of songs in German, French, and English. Of the two, `Illusions' is the more coherent, but that difference is small. Very much like The Doors first two albums, these two are both cut from a single cloth and with some material are precursors of Ms. Lemper's really excellent `Berlin Cararet Songs' done in both full English and German versions in 1997. For example, several songs on these two albums were written by Friedrich Hollaender who is featured on the `Berlin...' albums.

For those readers who are not familiar with Ute Lemper's repertoire, these two albums, along with the first `Ute Lemper Sings Kurt Weill' may be the best introduction to her style of performance. I have yet to hear one of her albums which I did not like; however, I suggest you stay away from her `Best of' album and her `Life is a Cabaret' album. The latter is a takeoff on Lisa Minelli's style and material and while I can listen to it with pleasure, it does not represent Ms. Lemper's best interpretations. If your taste in female vocalists includes Edith Piaf, Marlene Dietrich, and Barbra Streisand, especially for her dramatic and unusual interpretations of some songs, I suspect you will really like these recordings. If you are more fond of jazz vocalists along the lines of Blossom Deary and Billy Holliday, or like traditional Broadway performances as done by Betty Buckley, these may be just a bit too heavily laden with European `Weltshmertz'. Also, if you have no strong tastes in popular female vocalists, I strongly suggest you give these recordings a try. I also suggest that Ms. Lemper even does a better job with these tunes than you may find from a classically trained singer such as Anne Sophie von Otter, who is just a bit too sweet for this peppery material.

For readers who are were attracted to Ms. Lemper by the album, `Punishing Kiss', I strongly recommend these albums even over her Weill material.

Overall, if there is a better vocalist doing European ballads and musical stage numbers, I am not familiar with them. As a long time fan of Barbra Streisand who has found her material a bit flat lately, I am immensely happy to have Ms. Lemper to listen to, and always look forward to her latest material. I just with she would perform more on our shores.

Very highly recommended.

HOT & INTENSE 1 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Like the picture on the cover, this CD is hot and intense, beginning with a white hot version of "Losing My Mind." The arrangements are full of irony and are all very good except for the last part of "The Ladies Who Lunch," which kicks in with drums and Ute half-rapping the lyrics. The songs are all very good. The two medleys play like soundtracks to an arty film. Also very good are "Barbara" and "The Death Fugue."

Awful. avoid it 3 Aug. 2011
By ID - siena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My first contact with Ute Lemper was "Berlin Cabaret Songs", a fantastic disc that I listen often.
Afterwards, I bought "But one day...". It is not in my collection anymore.
I bought "City of Strangers" given the good critics it has in Amazon, specifically by Mr. Marols.
Well, it is a question of taste: if you like music without rythm, without armony, and without anything else, this disc can be for you. If not, avoid it.

Sublime 2 Sept. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lemper is the penultimate Cabaret performer. A perfectionist in every way. Her lyrical understanding of Sondheim is a true human gift. She has been touched by divinity.
